Suggestions for what to drink, and when
By Diana Kohnle
(HealthDay News) -- Drinking fluids regularly when the weather is hot can help prevent dehydration.
The American Heart Association offers these suggestions for dealing with the heat:
- If you are exercising outdoors or have a chronic health condition, you should drink extra fluids.
- If you tend to sweat heavily, drink extra fluids.
- Don't wait to drink until you feel thirsty, which may mean you're already dehydrated.
- Pale urine indicates that you are well hydrated, while darker urine suggests you need more fluids.
